Sunshine on a cloudy day

The California sun took the day off yesterday.

The clouds rolled in just in time to accompany some unfortunate news in my work world but I am taking advantage of the situation and making it work for me – more on this in the next couple of days.

Yesterday’s rainy/cloudy day in the bay inspired me to make a tropical themed dinner to brighten up the evening.

Pukana la (sunshine) Quinoa

Fresh pineapple

1 cup of quinoa

2 cups of chicken or veggie broth

1 red pepper

1 onion


Soy sauce

Powdered ginger


  • Prepare quinoa with broth and set aside
  • Sauté the garlic and onion in a little bit of pineapple juice, ginger and soy sauce
  • Add broccoli and pepper
  • Right before the veggies are fully cooked add chopped up pieces of pineapple and the cooked quinoa
  • Serve on top of a bead of spinach and top with sliced almonds and sesame seeds
